Cards with Cool Moves

Hello all...last day of the month and I wanted to share the project I created for Ustamp with Dawn and Friends Cards with Cool Moves online event! 
What's cool about the projects in Cards with Cool Moves is that one of the 3 cards has some sort of dimension or "animation" to it.  Mine has a pop-up that you'll have to check out in the tutorial.  I was floored at all the super cool cards I saw from all the designers.  So inspiring!  Hope you like my little sneak.  If you'd like to check out UStamp with Dawn and Friends, feel free to hop on over here.  Enjoy!  You'll really be in for a treat!

{Precious} Petite Purse!

Hi there, friends!  I know you guys are probably shocked at my 3 consecutive posts!  Well, I had to highlight one of my fave dies at the moment...especially since it's only being offered for a limited's part of the Summer Sooches promotion that ends on Monday, April 30th!  How adorable is this little purse?!  I can't seem to get enough of it. I'm sure that's largely due to the fact that I love me the purses!  Here's a close up.  I particularly like this green pattern!
This Petite Purse die is a great way to package little gifts and treats! {Just in time for Mother's Day!}  Here's a look at the die:
Don't miss out on this one!  The Summer Smooches promotion ends tomorrow, April 30th!

Bye for now.  I'll be catching up with you all soon.

Back to Stamping!

Hi all!  Happy Saturday!  As I had mentioned in my post yesterday, I got back to doing some stamping last weekend at my dear friend and upline Michelle Halleen's Demonstrator Event.  It was a lot of fun and I am always just impressed at the amazing projects and classes that Michelle puts together for us.  Here are a few pictures from the event, just to give you a taste of what we got to experience!
Here's Sandy, Michelle, me, and Whitney.  The 3 of us got these adorable pups from Michelle for participating in her event.

One of the many awesome displays - these fabric projects were shared by Sheila.
And, how adorable are these purses?  Each attendee got pampered with one of these at check-in!
These sweet Summer Smooches 3x3 cards and holder were one of the many awesome projects we got to make.  Isn't this DSP just deliciously summery?
And lastly - a pic of Robin and I with another cute project - a teabag and treat caddy.  All in all, it was a really fun day!

Thanks for stopping in today.  Hope you enjoy your weekend!

Retiring stamp sets...

Hi there, dear bloggie friends!  Hope you all are doing well.  Can you believe it's already that time of year to take one last look at the retiring stamp list? If you're thinking that it seems earlier than usual, well, you're right!  Stampin'Up! is in a transitional catalog year where we'll be starting the new catalog in JUNE! This year, there are lots of stamps that we'll be saying good bye to, so be sure to take a good scan of the list to make sure you don't miss one!  You only have until May 31st to take the plunge to scoop up your faves before they're gone!  You can check out the full list here.  You can also shop 24/7 at my online store.  Don't you fret too much about the retiring list, though - it just means that there's going to be that much more NEW stamps to feast your eyes on soon.  I am personally looking forward to that!

Meanwhile, I did want to do a quick recap of Easter - how was yours?  Hope you all had a great one!  It was especially fun this year with our little guy.  He's at such a fun stage!  He's on the brink of walking, so he just loves taking your hand to go go go!  Here's a quick 8"x8" page layout I created in MDS using the Eggceptional Easter digital download {I did switch up the colors to this layout just a bit!}:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Catch up with you guys soon! :)
